Panel Webinars

NADP is developing a range of free panel webinars for members.

The idea of these webinars is that we can support each other by sharing knowledge and experience as well as enhancing CPD opportunities for our members.

2. 20th Anniversary of the Special Educational Needs and Disability Act (SENDA)

Tuesday 15th September 2021: 11:00-12:30 with optional networking until 13:00.

The Special Educational Needs and Disability Act 2001 (SENDA) established legal rights for disabled students in pre- and post-16 education.

The Act introduced the right for disabled students not to be discriminated against in education, training and any services provided wholly or mainly for students, and for those enrolled on courses provided by ‘responsible bodies’, including further and higher education institutions and sixth form colleges.

Student services covered by the Act included a wide range of educational and non-educational services, such as field trips, examinations and assessments, short courses, arrangements for work placements and libraries and learning resources.
